I'm looking for a motif of a dragon. I've searched here, there & everywhere. I have patterns for scarves, stuffed animals, etc. but no motif. I've looked through motif books, and I've struck out.

I am terrible at drawing. I have seen a great program for motif making, but at 89.00 that eats into the yarn budge.

I'm wanting to knit my new grandson some cute stuff, w/ the motif of a Dragon,, due to his name being Draco.

The granddaughter's name is Angel.. that I've found motif's for...

This is what I get allowing my kids to name their own kids.. gezzz lol

The book Kids.Kids.Kids, 40 Winning Patterns from the Knitter's Magazine Contest has a great dragon sweater in it that could be adapted. Click on my www and there's a picture in there somewhere.

http://crochet.about.com/library/blwdragon.htm has another one

The only one I can think of is in the book Scarf Style. It's an intarsia pattern.

snowbear, would this (http://www.microrevolt.org/knitPro/) site help? :shrug: It takes images from your computer and puts them on a graph for you, and it's free. :happydance: If you find the dragon motifs, you can scan it into your computer and use that site to make a graph for you.

Draco--pretty cool name! Is he named after the constellation?
